Perfectly positioned along Parramatta River, Rhodes is a waterside suburb in Sydney’s west that packs a whole lot in. From leisurely foreshore parks to a shopping centre that strikes a chord with homemakers. Here, there is a little something for everyone.
Rhodes Waterside is by far a standout. A major retail development which houses many big-name brands, such as IKEA and Target. Fashion and homeware stores aside, Rhodes Waterside is also a foodie destination with an abundance of cafes and eateries that cater well to Rhodes thriving multicultural community.
Head down to the water’s edge to access several foreshore parks. From there, you have a network of walkways and cycle paths that have uninterrupted views of the river that’s popular with dragon boat and rowing crews.
Big business also has a place in Rhodes with several commercial buildings housing the likes of Australian Associated Press, National Australia Bank and Nestle. And down the road, Sydney’s premier sporting and recreation facilities, Sydney Olympic Park is a crowd-pleaser – Stadium Australia, Sydney International Aquatic Centre, Bicentennial Park and Millennium Parklands. Plus, DFO’s, Paddy’s Markets and Sydney Markets are a short five-minute drive away.
Locals can get around with ease, with the train line connecting Rhodes to Sydney’s CBD and major transport interchanges of Strathfield, Epping and Hornsby. Rhodes is also the jumping-off point for some of Sydney’s major arteries; Victoria Road, M4 Western Motorway / Parramatta Road and City West Link.
One of Sydney’s more densely populated areas, Rhodes is predominately made up of sparkling new apartments. And although there are no schools in Rhodes per say, most primary school kids in the area attend Wentworth Point Public School, Concord West Public School, Strathfield North Public School or Saint Ambrose at Concord West.
